Just like your body needs regular visits to the doctor for annual check-ups, your water heater needs to be checked for operational and physical damages, or wear and tear.
You can’t solve a problem until you know what’s causing it. And it applies to your water heater too.
Replacing or repairing a water heater (tanked or tankless) can be very expensive, but regular inspections by a trusted HVAC company can help you find and fix problems before its condition deteriorates.
Timely water heater inspection and maintenance is vital to ensure your water heater will last for a longer time.

Importance of Your Water Heater’s Annual Inspection
Water heaters are expensive but they are a very important part of the modern lifestyle. Using a dishwasher, washing machine, or even showering, requires hot water, and are part of our daily needs.
As soon as you notice your water heater is not maintaining its temperature properly, or the water is not as hot as it is on a regular basis, it may be time to pick up your phone and call SmileHVAC expert technicians to schedule an annual inspection of your water heater.
These are some of the first signs that point towards problems with your water heater. Don’t ignore them because these will turn into bigger problems if not inspected and fixed today.
Be conscious of how your water heater is working lately, and if you notice any inconsistency in the temperature of your hot water, it is time for a water heater annual inspection.
Steps to Follow for a Water Heater DIY Inspection
Identifying issues with your water heater early can help you save thousands of dollars and minimize the hassle.
If you want and have the time, you can do your water heater inspection yourself. Here is a quick DIY guide for you to follow to inspect your water heater yourself:
Inspect for rust or corrosion on the exterior of your water tank as well as the anode rods.
Turn the pressure relieve valve to check whether it releases water or not if it doesn’t, you need to get it replaced.
Run the water from the water heater through the floor drain (or outside), to expel any sediment from your water tank. This needs to be done at least once (twice is ideal) a year.
Remove the front panels to check the heating elements; if you see rust accumulated on them, it’s time for a replacement; otherwise, you will wake up to no hot water in the middle of the night.
Ensure your temperature is between 49C to 52C to keep your utility bill low and to limit wear and tear that high temperatures can cause
